INCREDIBLE! What an amazingly strong and brave man. By the way, this is the reason my hubby chose RP with a biopsy result of only 1 x 5% core at his particular age at the time (49) with a Gleeson 7, instead of active surveillance. It was the potential for the aggressiveness of the Gleeson 7 to spread, which (for us and in our situation), decided the treatment option for us. My hubby had surgery which (thankfully) showed no local spread unlike this guy (however lymph nodes were not tested, just examined). For many months however, the outcomes of post op PSA were always looming ominously as my hubby prepared mentally for further treatment if needbe, although he had a favourable path report. He didn't need it in the end (so far) as it turned out, but this visual account did indeed bring back strong memories 6071. But such a GREAT ending as you say Dale.... that little kid is soooooo lucky to have a grandad like him.
Happy holidays to all... we are just in and out for a few days then away for about
a month now. Our beautiful 10 yr old dog went to doggy heaven just before Christmas, so we need to take a holiday now. ... such a lovely and powerful Utube to see today however - thanks, and happy holidays 6071 and everyone else, especially Billy Boy Mac, and Biker, Swim, David, Barry, Dale, Sephie, Dotting, James C, Alf, Kev (& Angela) and everyone I have missed out.
Bye for a few weeks now. Lana & CJ (sitting in the perfect summer rain......today). xxoo
